Tooth Enamel and Tooth Sensitivity

Tooth sensitivity is a warning sign that the tooth enamel has been damaged or eroded. Tooth enamel is vital to protecting the tooth’s inner core from bacteria and once damaged, it cannot be replaced. This is why it is so important to protect tooth enamel by:

  • NEVER using the teeth as a tool for opening items
  • NEVER brush teeth too aggressively
  • NEVER letting teeth grinding become a habit
